Do you really need a receptionist to answer your calls?
If you’ve ever found yourself in a position where your phone is ringing off the hook and you’re trying to focus your attention on your client, then yes, you need a receptionist to answer your calls!
The phone can be very distracting. Not just to you but to your client. They are trying to speak with you, and they see your attention slightly alter. It’s not ideal.
And when you don’t answer the phone, you’re wondering if you’ve missed a potential client or an important call from an existing client.
Then you also have the fun game of phone tag when you’re trying to call clients back either at the end of the day, or in between seeing clients. But answering queries and booking in clients is all part and parcel of your business so it must be done.
When you outsource to a virtual reception service you’re making sure that:
- You never miss an important call
- Your clients feel valued by having their call answered
- You’re booking in clients
- You’re showing that you’re running a professional practice.
What our clients have to say
Paula and her Team are one of my most valued resources. I run a 100% outsourced business in that I do not employ any direct staff, and Paula’s specific financial planning client services experience combined with clear and simple pricing for her services, means that I can support and service a significantly larger client base than if I was handling all of the client services work myself. I am also able to only pay for the time spent when tasks are actually being worked on/completed, as opposed to having a full-time salaried staff member sitting idle and costing me money. The engagement is clear and transparent with excellent time tracking and reporting, and the ability to ‘prepay’ for blocks of hours is helpful for managing cash flow. I highly recommend Paula’s team to any business that would prefer not to have the hassle of a full-time office staff member, and have a simple and professional engagement that delivers great efficiency and results.
